Analysis of Banluerit’s Leg Kick KO
Broken rhythm is the simplest way to unpredictability.
Imagine yourself on a treadmill. You’re running at a steady pace of 5 miles per hour. Then someone switches it to 9. Then to 2. Then to 1. Then to 7.
This is what broken rhythm is. If you’re running at a steady pace, it will take a long time for you to get tired. If you’re running at a random pace, you will be exhausted quickly. Broken rhythm not only helps you to setup strikes. It also helps you exhaust your opponent.
Banluerit perfectly utilized broken rhythm and set ups to crush his opponent’s lead leg. He feinted, delayed his punches, switched angles, and much more. The options with broken rhythm are endless. Broken rhythm is more than feints and fakes. You can, like the Diaz brothers do, mix up the power and speed of your strikes.
Broken rhythm is complete unpredictability. If you would like to see more of Banluerit’s broken rhythm, check out the Evolve MMA video below:
